Hey, everyone – it’s Lisa reporting for DIY duty and I’ve got the cutest craft for you. I have to say, I’m pretty new in the parenting game. With this year being my third official Mother’s Day, I am truly excited to present this Kid-Friendly Mother’s Day Craft.
When it comes to Mother’s Day, I’m all about personalized gifts created by my little one. There’s nothing sweeter than Mother’s Day gifts made by kids! This is exactly why I came up with a magnetic popsicle stick picture frame.
This cute DIY gift is something that parents can make with their creative kiddos. And let me tell you, any mom, aunt, or grandmother will surely appreciate it.
Popsicle Stick Picture Frame
- 13-15 standard-sized popsicle craft sticks
- Acrylic paint, in 3 different colors of your choice
- Foam paint brush
- 2 cotton swabs
- Hot glue gun
- Magnetic sheet with an adhesive backing
- Decorative flower pieces (usually used for scrapbooking)
- Your favorite picture of your little one!
Step 1 – Start Painting
The exciting part about this DIY is that the first step is one even the littlest kids can help out with. Choose one of your acrylic paint colors to paint the surface of all of your popsicle sticks.
Allow to completely dry before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2 – Create the Frame
Grown-ups, now it’s your turn to help. Create the shape of the frame by first, adding hot glue to one end of 2 popsicle sticks (you will add glue on the back of one and on the second, on the painted side).
Attach together to create an “L” shape.
Step 3 – Finish off the Frame’s Structure
Add glue to one end (on the painted side) of a popsicle stick, and attach it under the horizontal stick.
Continue by gluing the ends of the backside of your remaining popsicle sticks and attach them to your structure. Continue until it’s filled.
Step 4 – Decorate with Paint
Once the glue has dried, your kiddos can join-in the DIY fun again! Use the 2 cotton swabs to paint polka dots all over the frame. You may use your two remaining acrylic paints to create a colorful piece!
Step 5 – Add Flower Details
Glue your decorative flower pieces on the corner of your frame.
Step 6 – Make it Magnetic
Cut out 2 small pieces of your magnetic sheet and stick it behind the frame.
Step 7 – Add A Photo To The Popsicle Stick Picture Frame
Trim a photo and glue on the front center of your newly-created frame.
